When Dylan (Mark Ruffalo) enters Thaddeus' (Morgan Freeman's) jail cell, music can be heard in the background. Fitting the film's overall revenge and vendettas themes, the song is "Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen" (The Revenge of Hell Boils in My Heart), from Mozart's opera The Magic Flute. See more »

Look, it's not something I'm proud of, but every girl I get close to, I end up taking their trust. And then their wallet. So...
You take their wallets?
[holds up Jack's wallet and drops it on the floor]
You ever take their belts?
[Lula holds up Jack's belt and drops it on the floor]
Or how about some peanuts from the hotel bar?
[she holds them up and drops them]
Not sure why you took those. I'm sorry, did you think that I was like those other girls? Oh, Jack.

I really love the first "Now You See Me," like, a lot. It's just a really light, breezy, nonstop fun movie, and it knows it. And the trailer for this movie looked like it would be more of the same, which I was completely fine with. Unfortunately, the trailer is infinitely better than the actual film.
Honestly, this movie was embarrassing to watch. From the childishly annoying character that Lizzy Caplan plays, to the horrendously unfunny identical twin that Woody Harrelson plays, I was cringing in my seat and praying for deliverance. Now, one could argue that Lizzy Caplan's character was intentionally annoying, and that Woody Harrelson's twin character was intentionally unfunny, and while I would agree with that, it still didn't make for an enjoyable viewing experience, especially when these two characters had a significant amount of screen time.
I can't deny that "Now You See Me 2" did have some very entertaining sequences, with one particular scene involving an elaborate card trick being the definite highlight of the film. However, these few scenes couldn't save this forgettable mess of a film. I mean honestly, I'm having a hard time writing this review because I can't even remember what I disliked about this movie. It's just a completely forgettable film in every way that will leave your mind as soon as the credits start.
Huh, come to think of it, maybe this film did do something right after all: it disappears completely, just like a real magician would.
